Didn't go anywhere fancy, just went to paradigm lepak kejap pasal Zufri lewat. Bawak Kiddos naik teksi. Emma was so excited and happy, she bragged to anyone who would listen. Dinner was at Las Vacas. Delicious food. Yummy company. The restaurant was practically empty so the kids could just run around and let us grown ups enjoy our food.
So this anniversary, Zufri bought me (or the house, rather) a sofa! Hahaha lame I know but I've been complaining for the longest time and I guess he just couldn't take it anymore. Anyway, sofas are so expensive! Rasa macam nak menangis cari sofa je. But we finally settled on this gorgeous and super comfy sofa from Ikea. Asked Emma, whaT did she think of it?
Sekejap eh mummy.
Dia pergi dekat arm rest tu, panjat dan slid down to the seat. Smiled and then said best.
A-ha! Macam tu rupanya cara pilih sofa!
One anniversary he gave us a water heater haha. Oh dear my husband is so practical.
Malam ni asyik hujan kan? Selesanya tidur berselubung comforter. See you guys soon.
Tengok tu masa berlalu dengan sangat pantas that Aisha's just a blurry vision! Photo taken during Raya Haji di Restoran Hamideeyah, Campbell Street, Penang. We parked at theparking area opposite Line Clear. Ya Allah. Dah keluar baru perasan sejam RM4! Habis RM16!
Lepas tu balik SP naik feri. Semuaorang enjoy, Emma and I especially. Heee.
This is a photo of Emma playing with her cousin Hani Nur Khadeeja. Umur Hani Nur setahun lagi tua dari Emma, but Emme is a bit taller. Si kecik bontot tonggek pasal pakai cloth diaper.
Eh I have to say, I truly support cloth diapering. Its lighter on your wallet especially if you're planning on having more than 1 child. And although the cheaper brands are okay, both my Lunatots have tears in their waterproof lining. And the same with Bouncy Baby. A good, cheap brand of CD is Sentuhan Bayu. Check out senuhanbayu.biz. RM19.99 je satu set. Aisha has 3. Two more are on their way hehe.
Nah gambar Aisha baru bangun tidur. I've introduced her to formula about 3 weeks ago. Aku pun dah start tak rajin nak mengepam 3 kali sehari. Kadang kadang aku pam 2 kali but most days its only during lunch. She's now coughing, with phlegm. Hoping that Insha Allah, everything will be fine.
Another of Aisha. Dahi dia jendul okay!
Okay mengantuk. Good night!
Or to be exact what an end to June!
First the great news. Anies gave birth to a chubby looking and indeed-o chubby at 3.2 kilos this early morning at 4.20 am. Alhamdulillah, congrats to Anies dan Shafik. so happy for them! Air ketuban pecah di restoran ye, drama sangat. Haven't had the chance to go visiting yet because..
Great news number two: I'm in JB to attend my cousin's wedding! Alhamdulillah, congrats to cousin Zaki and his wife Azila. Beautiful wedding. Besok turn wedding di Singapore pula dan Papa wants to leave at 8:00 am. Good luck.
Anywayyyy, after the bride's sanding tadi (Zaki married a Johorean because we Johoreans are so cool and much sought after) the groom's rombongan lepak our house sekejap to regroup. While everyone was inside, somebody smashed the window of an auntie's Alza and took a cousin's handbag.
There were two passports in the bags. Australian passports. Jadi sekarang semua orang lain nak ke singapore untuk wedding esok. Yang seorang (Raidah) nak balik KL pasal suami dia kata (depa baru kahwin 2 minggu lepas) suruh balik KL, settle kat KL. Lagi sorang (Khadeeja) nak cuba masuk singapore tanpa pasport, menggunakan report polis.
Seorang pakcik, bateri kereta dia mati. Semua orang struggle pasal tak tau mana letaknya bateri kereta dia. Bengkel banyak tutup pasal malam sabtu. Kalau bukak pun, xde jual bateri bersesuaian. 4 bengkel kemudian baru jumpa mekanik. Tu pun bateri dia kecik gila.
Pakcik makcik dan cousin cousin dah bergelimpangan kat depan. Dramatik sungguh our end of June.
At least the whole family's together :)
My weight happily stayed there. I jogged, I exercised, I tried to diet. A few weeks ago I noticed that my work slacks were a bit loose that I had to wear a belt. At lunch I ate half a portion of rice, focusing more on vegetables and protein. I drank lots of air kosong, especially before lunch time, because I'm still pumping milk. Aku berpendapat bahawa badan aku harus biasakan diri menghasilkan susu dengan kadar makanan separuh yang aku makan, agar kelak tiada masalah penghasilan susu jika aku tetiba nak diet. Panjang inner conflict aku ni, ni summary saja.
So today I decided to weigh myself. Lama dah tak timbang berat, kerana balik-balik melihat angka yang sama, diri menjadi sedikit bosan dan stress. Hee hee berat aku kini 61 kilo. I lost 4 kilos tanpa disedari dan ini membuat aku terasa sangat best. Yeah 61 is still heavy, but a loss is still a loss no matter how little it is, so mari memotivasikan diri sendiri! Nak turun ke 55 kilo boleh tak? Tapi pasal terasa diri dah kurus, terus aku minum coke hampir habis sebotol besar. Instant gratification sungguh. Tiada disiplin. Semoga aku insaf dan sambung makan yang sihat sihat saja sehingga selamanya.
Oh God, teruk betul bahasa dan isi post ini. I wanted to do some work but found out I couldn't. I should go to sleep now because I feel delirious. Minum coke dulu segelas hee hee.
L-r : Aisha, Emma (the small red one), Bapak & Mummy
Thanks Emma for acknowledging my ample bosom. Sheesh. And why lah am I the biggest??! Everybody knows Zufri is bigger, hehe.
I've never taught Emma how to draw, so this definitely came as a surprise. Rasa macam nak frame aje papan hitam ni muahaha.
So, stories. Pipi baked me some coconut rainbow cupcakes that I have requested since forever. Her coconut cake is the best! Brought some to the office to share with my lunch mates.
Hee hee.. Zufri surprised me with a bouquet of roses and lilies sent to the office.
Then at night he took us out for dinner at an “undisclosed location”. Surprise katanya. What he doesn’t know was that I already know where we were going, and who else were going to be there. Hee hee. Not because I could ‘read his face’ but because Shikin actually called me up to ask me out but I was afraid that Zufri might not want to go because to drive up to KL on Friday night.. it might rain, the roads might be jammed, Aisha could be so cranky that nobody would have a good time. . the list goes on. So I told her to directly call Zufri and say that she’s planning a surprise party for me, muahaha. Turns out yeah, Zufri agreed.
His surprises are usually so borderline lame. Like this one time we were driving in my beloved kelisa weezer in UM, tiba-tiba dia berhenti tepi jalan kata eh botol dalam bonet tu bergerak-gerak lah, tolong susun sekejap. Hahaha, di situ aje aku dah suspect. Kenapa aku pula yang kena susun botol tu? Then the other time also was hidden in the car, on the floor underneath some papers or something. That was also gagal pasal aku tak perasan. Haha. So I suppose he thought there was no way I could figure this out.
I was toying with the idea of springing a Gotcha moment on Zufri when we got to the restaurant, but decided to just go with the flow and see how it goes. But Zufri was very very keen on surprising me so I was leaning more towards acting surprised. Dalam kepala asyik terfikir apakah cara terbaik untuk berlagak surprised? Menjerit? Melompat?
Kemudian kita sampai ke restoran itu. We lingered at the lobby, looking at some Aprilia motors on display. I was really hungry by then, also very anxious and excited and nervous. Would I be able to pull this off? Will my face betray my emotions? Chewah. Then as we entered the restaurant, I saw Shikin and Anies waving our way.
I mean sheesh! I already know they were gonna be there! It's not really a surprise! Motif nak menangis?! MOTIF?!!?
But I love it. Good food, good company, good music. The live 4 piece band came by to sing me a birthday song and presented me with a complimentary birthday cake. Lepas tu depa menyanyi lagu Awan Nano pulak. Hahaha. But they sounded so good! Terngiang-ngiang sampai sekarang. Ketika itu terasa seperti dalam video klip Awan Nano pulak. And now I'm playing that song on repeat.
Now that was one helluva surprise.
Kalau berjaga tapi tak gaduh takpe, ni tak boleh ditinggalkan. Masuk blik at 8pm, then tak nak tidur jugak so I got out and cooked dinner sekejap (the most delicious sup tulang berempah ewah dicicah dengan cili kicap yummyyyy), sempat lagi makan malam, kemas dapur bagai, pun Aisha tak mahu tidur. Masuk balik bilik, golek golek, tonggeng tonggeng (she got on all fours, rocked her body a few times, kemudian tersembam ke depan. Lepas tu buat balik).
Susu tak nak, masukkan EBM dalam botol susu pun tak nak. Now I understand why some mothers decide to formula feed their child. I seriously thought I had run out of milk, and in my hands was a baby, crying with all her might. So I passed the baton, or rather the baby, to Zuf (since he was staying up to watch the Arsenal game anyway) and put Emma to bed pulak. A few minutes later, I was already asleep and voila! So was Aisha. Congrats to Zuf!
Kesannya? Hari ni bangun pagi pukul 8.
Keeping to my resolution, so far. So I'm trying out this new blogging app, let's see if it's any good.
We had Shaqeel for the weekend while K Chy went outstation. It was nice to see Emma and Shaq and even Aisha bonding. Once I was at the kitchen, leaving the kids alone in the kids' room, then Aisha sorta cried. I yelled "Emma! Main dengan Aisha!". Usually she'd just follow my order. Today I heard her yell "Shaqeel! Main dengan Aisha!". Lepas tu dengar suara Shaqeel cakap-cakap dengan "Esha". Hehe the heirarchy has changed.
Haha really quick update. Happy Monday morning, everyone!
